Costa Rica, Panama (nr. Gamboa). Costa Rica: lowland wet forest sites; Hitoy Cerere Biological Reserve, Osa Peninsula, Manuel Antonio National Park, Carara Biological Reserve.
Face densely punctate, intervals between puncta subequal to puncta diameter; propodeum not strongly tectiform (tent-like), sides broadly round into relatively broad dorsal face (propodeum tectiform in JTL-001); petiole moderately thin, scale-like in lateral profile, anterior and posterior faces weakly converging to broadly rounded dorsal face; color orange. Measurement data.
This species inhabits leaf litter on the floor of mature wet forest. I know it only from Winkler samples of sifted litter from the forest floor.
